TOSS

Multan Sultan have won the toss and elected to bowl first against Islamabad United.

Multan Sultans went down against Karachi Kings despite Malik’s 24-ball fifty. Islamabad, who won the season opener, will look to build more momentum against Multan, who came up short against Karachi Kings yesterday.

Islamabad are unchanged. Ali Shafiq and Johnson Charles in for Multan, Moores and Ilyas out.
